A well established genre for artists, ‘The Interior of Home,’ consists of paintings depicting the artist’s homes, from childhood to the present. Painted over a period of fourteen years, these works investigate memory, loss and the significance of home. Our lives fill the interior spaces of our homes with our energy - our moods, aspirations, disappointments, fears, traumas, joy, celebrations - connections with ourselves and others. They hold our possessions and provide space for us to sleep, eat, wash, rest, play, relate, interact, think, create and daydream. Every home has a feeling, a kinaesthetic sensation that fills the space and these paintings engage with the unique energy of the placesthey depict. This body of work also explores the more formal concerns of space, line, shape, tone and colour. It plays with spatial relationships, flat space and pattern. The paintings invite the observer to physically enter the spaces depicted. While these interiors are specific and personal, they invite us to spaces we may have known, remembered or imagined.
